“Dear PoPville,

On Oct.22nd btw 5-5:30pm at F and 10th Street, NW in front of Madame Tussaud’s my daughter was hit by a male riding a bicycle. He did not stop, just hit and ran.

This thoughtless act resulted in her having a broken elbow. She required surgery: a metal plate implanted. Next to her Physical Therapy to regain full range of motion.

Accidents happen. But to hit, run and be so uncaring is What…. I don’t know how to describe such behavior.

What my daughter recalls is that it was a male, with a flag on his bike (type of flag unknown) and she thinks a beenie (spelling not sure) on his head.

We filed a police report and requested footage from the traffic camera.

Would you believe we were told by the police they will not pull the footage since it is not a fatality.

Yes I am most pleased my daughter is alive but what am I paying taxes for?

If anyone has information that might lead to the identity of this individual please call
202-903-7617 or email [email protected]
